Hired under different name but same man, Canadian Tradesman is the same as Steelwood Citi and Aries Entreprises. Utterly incompetent. Very delayed at each step of the job, attempted to short cut work, incompetent subcontractors. Substandard work. Refused to return deposit.
Mr Ken Lim did not provide the services of construction to a washroom that was to be renovated.
The bathroom countertop is lower than before, grout is missing inbetween broken tiles that are grouted to the shower and floor, A delay to complete this project, with multiple problems of his "so called workers" that he hired were not paid therefore, could not finish their part.
Overall, we paid this man to renovate a washroom for resale of the house, and now we are left with having to start from scratch all over again.
We provided all the materials, we requested the service and paid this man for it, and was left with an unfinished, unproper washroom

Personally I didn't have a very good experience with Steelwood Citi owned by Ken Lim. I am still hoping that he will do the right thing and at least agree to meet with me to work out the issues. He used my credit card that I gave him to give to the bin/waste company to buy personal tools and fix his truck which he promised to pay the money back and is now a complete no show. The money that was paid to him was to go towards paying the electrician, plumber, roofer and framer is also outstanding. At least two of the four sub trades are still waiting to get paid.
First and foremost always insist on getting the contractor's License number to prove that he and the company are licensed to do renovations in the city of Toronto.
Wishing you the best with your next renovation and pray you don't have the situation I have to deal with.
In My rebuttal against kris creelman is not true and not accurate. Work performed by my company did pass city inspection and it was the undermining of kris who hired another contractor at a cheaper cost to perform work that I had did due diligent provided 3 quotes on, causing the structure to be compromised. As for paying trades there is 2 that are to be paid that we do in 30 days after inspections are passed with out any deficiency. Just about every trade I bring in and start work they have been stopped and someone else hired by kris at a cheaper rate undermining my abillity to manage the project. I'm not a con/scam artist and will seek legal resources if this matter is not stopped. I'm sorry it has come to this but this was caused by kris who undermined my every step in this project.
